Snowy days and frosty weather has revisited us here to Ontario. Spring is not just stalling, it's in retreat. The garden walls are aching to throw winter out, but the ice hangs on tight in the crevices. The tiny alpine plants (despite their hardy names) must hang tight for another month at least before they try to grow.
At least the slanted garden photographs well with such frosty white contrasts.
The stones are the protectors of the soil, rooted deep, carrying the rhythm and beauty of the front garden until the plants are able to take over.
